Straw color with greenish hues, aromas of green apples, and golden delicious, demi-sec like taste soft and long-lasting finish. Fragrant, light, and floral. These are the adjectives that best describe Prosecco.
Thanks to its authentic nature, this is a wine that has been able to reinvent itself from a regional table wine to a status symbol for toasting and celebrations, in Italy and beyond. It is consistently the best-selling Italian wine in the world and in 2014, sales of Prosecco surpassed even that of the famed “bubbly”, Champagne. A recent success that conceals a much more complex and fascinating history.
Commitment, research, respect, and continuous evolution are the benchmark values both in the vineyards and at Valdo Winery’s two production sites. The winery has always sought to enhance Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore DOCG’s wine-making heritage and land, to the best of its ability.
Excellent as an aperitif, ideal with salumi and smoked fish.
The Valdo wineries were established at the heart of Conegliano Valdobbiadene, a unique land and Unesco World Heritage, just half an hour from the magnificent city of Venice. The love story between Valdo and this land rewarded by nature and at the heart of the Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore DOCG production is continually evolving. Year after year, Valdo has written new pages, describing how passion, together with tradition and innovation, can lead to the creation of unique Sparkling wines.
Valdo is a name that instantly brings to mind the land it belongs to, Valdobbiadene. A name inextricably linked to the Bolla family, which has been in the wine-making industry for more than 90 years. Considered one of the oldest in the area, over the course of three generations it has been able to spread the culture of Prosecco in Italy and throughout the world.
Valdo Sparkling wines’ excellence stems from one of Valdo’s key advantages and important factors, the control of the entire production process. From growing to harvesting, from the sparkling process to the bottling and packaging stage, Valdo is constantly committed to ensuring it monitors the entire production chain with the end purpose of producing top quality sparkling wines.

@wardad Most bubblies are non-vintage, which is supposed to help the producer keep the quality consistent from year to year. So they blend a base wine from the current vintage with “reserve” wines that can, in some cases, go back decades. For an inexpensive Prosecco, I’d guess the base vintage being 2019 with maybe 25% from 2015-2018.
@cathyk39 Yes indeed! I did not see that. So often that comment will be made about a dry wine to get across a certain sensation, but of course, it might actually be demi-sec. Which I know is legitimate and good, buy my wife likes bone-dry; a little “sorta semi-sweet sensation” is okay, as long as it’s actually dry.
Rattaaaage Report here! I got all tingly when I got the email from Alice, and was hoping it would be something festive- and it is!
I chilled it for a few hours and popped & poured. The wine has a nice fizz to it and a pretty dry aroma. My label is a bit different than the bottle shot here, and says “extra dry” at the bottom.
On the nose there’s slight hints of pear or apple and a very very faint biscuit in the background - very faint. (it may be too cold)
On the palate, again pear, and a slight bit of cherry on the back palate with a super clean and pleasant finish. It’s very dry. On the palate there’s hardly any toast or biscuit or cream or almond or any of that… it’s very clean and fruity. If this were blind, I’d never guess Prosecco.
If I were served this at a brunch I’d be happy! This is food-friendly and exceedingly drinkable and dangerous for 11 am. . It is Friday however and so I will take one for the team
